For those interested in learning to make their own shoes, I offer private classes in my Cleveland, Ohio studio.  It is a five day course that covers the entire shoemaking process - you will learn to remove the soles from base shoes, make patterns, skive leather, sew, last, and finally reattach the soles.  You will do all the work yourself, so don't expect to walk away with a perfectly beautiful pair of shoes - do expect to walk away knowing the skills and processes that, if practiced, will allow you to make beautiful shoes.  Cost is $3500.  Fill out the contact form with some of your ideal dates, and we will book whenever works for us both!
